A Nice Package




I mentioned recently that I wanted to start taking more care in wrapping gifts. So I have begun my search for pretty packaging. It started here with a few bits from a Nice Package - the hand-written tag I especially like.




I also bought some basics from high street favourite WHSmith. And dug out some ribbon from my ribbon box.




But I think there will be many more buys to come, this is only the start of a collection and I haven't really done a good web search yet. So many colour options, so many adornments - I think I could become addicted. And discovering this shop today - Mr Rabbit Sir, the possibilities for creativity are endless! Does anyone have any other good suggestions?

i love silky, satin ribbons for wrapping presents up. i always save the ones from lush gift boxes too! but i also love simple wrapping like brown paper and string. it was my boyfriend's birthday yesterday and i had no wrapping paper so i used the sports pages of the guardian :D

Wow you have beautiful handwriting! Love the tags as well; I usually make mine by hand if I'm feeling especially creative, but I'm usually rushing so having a few of those Mr Rabbit Sir goodies around would definitely help! Super cute.
